  4. Since we have no connections from earlier, we will add a new one by clicking Add.
  5. A new Connection window will open up.scorch_scom_3
  6. Fill in a name for your connection, the SCOM server information and credentials that have access to your SCOM server.scorch_Scom_4
  7. Once you have filled in everything you can test the connection by clicking Test Connection.scorch_scom_6
  8. If you get an error or a crash it means that you don’t have the .NET Framework 3.5 feature installed.scorch_scom_5
    This requires you to have the .NET Framework 3.5 feature installed, see the bottom of this post on how to install it.
